Monster Throw!

Last week during our planning meeting, the kids said they wanted to throw monsters in the trash. So we closed our block shelf and made our carpet area into a monster throwing mania. The kids had a blast. I mixed monster bodies (pom poms) and monster eyes (wiggly eyes) together. Then, I made a line for the kids to stand behind using masking tape. Let the monster throw begin! A very simple activity that took almost no time to prepare! :)

Monster Slime!

Our class has had a ton of fun this week learning through monsters. Yesterday, we made monster slime. I had never made slime before. I knew the kids would love it, but I was surprised to find out addicted to it I was! I played with the slime as much as the kids did. It is slimier than play-dough and stretchier then gooey gunk. By far MY favorite and I'm sure my would agree with me. 

I found this recipe on It's a great website for science ideas. I'm already planning on using other experiments from there.

2 Cups Glue (4 reg. Sized Elmer Glue Bottles)
2 Cups Water
Mix and add food coloring if desired
2 Cups Liquid Starch
